March 25, 2017: The feast of the Annunciation on 25th March 2017 was a day of joy and gratitude for the sisters of Shanthi Rani Convent Siddakatte. It’s a day of celebration and jubilation for the silver years of the community in the history of Bethany. What thanks can we render to our Lord for all his wonderful blessings and the protection which we have received during the past 25 years of our stay over here?

Shanthi Rani Convent is situated in the vicinity of Siddakatte between Bantwal and Belthangady Taluk. The convent is surrounded by lush greenery. It welcomes everyone with warmth and joy and helps to be fresh and energetic. It remembers and reminds the hard works of our Sr Medela who had toiled day and night and fulfilled the   dream of our Founder RFC Mascarenhas along with Sr Bernadette, Sr Lawrencia, Sr Vincent, Sr Jane, Sr Angus, Sr Benedicta, Sr Christine and Sr Clementine who worked hard to bring up this rubber plantation.  Today we enjoy the fruit of their labour. Sr Edna, Sr Evangelista, and later Sr Carita have rendered service as Superiors to continue this mission.

On the day of the Jubilee, we felt heavenly as the chapel vibrated with the melodious liturgical singing by our sisters. The Mass was officiated by Rev Fr Antony Lasardo, the Parish Priest of Siddakatte. After the Eucharist Sr Medela Sr Bernadette, Sr Lawrencia, Sr Vincent, the pioneer sisters, and superiors Sr Edna, Sr Evangelista and Sr Carita were felicitated by Our Provincial Superior Sr Cicilia Mendonca. Thereafter, she congratulated, appreciated and thanked the past and present members of the community and called on us to continue the mission with trust and confidence in the Almighty god and Queen of peace our patron.
Hats off to Sr Carita for her enterprising leadership along with the community sisters: Sr Ronaldine, Sr Leandra and Sr Shanthi Flavia.
